Dr. Tolga Mesen, a specialist in infertility, fertility preservation, and minimally invasive surgery, has been selected to lead Carolina Fertility Institute’s (CFI) new office in Charlotte. Dr. Mesen is currently Board Certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology and is Board Eligible in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility.

CFI will open the Charlotte office this summer in the Eastover Medical Park located at 2614 East 7th St.

Dr. Mesen is well known in Charlotte and the surrounding areas.  He completed his four-year residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte, North Carolina. During this time, he was elected as the Chief Resident in his final year.  Following residency he completed his sub-specialty fellowship training in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill.

Dr. Mesen first became interested in reproductive medicine as a medical student at Wake Forest University School of Medicine, when he crossed paths with Dr. Yalcinkaya as a medical student.  They quickly formed a strong and lasting relationship due to their shared interest in the treatment of infertility.  According to CFI founder Dr. Tamer Yalcinkaya, Dr. Mesen was the first choice to head the new location. “Dr. Mesen knows the Charlotte market, local doctors and has treated patients there.  We were excited to bring our success to this area, and with Dr. Mesen aboard, patients should be excited with all that we can offer.”

Charlotte patients are currently seeing their local Charlotte OB/GYNs for regular appointments and ultrasounds, with specialized appointments at CFI Winston-Salem.

CFI enters Charlotte with among the highest IVF success rates in the nation due to a combination of professional talent and the latest technology. The practice has been delighting patients since their opening in March 2015, specializing in highly-personalized treatment and resulting in many first-cycle pregnancies.

CFI’s numerous advantages should make them the clear choice for NC residents seeking a fertility solution. Practice founder Dr. Tamer Yalcinkaya is one of the nation’s premier fertility specialists. Also on staff is Chief Embryologist Dr. Cihan Halicigil, a world-recognized talent that operates CFI’s state-of-the-art IVF lab. CFI is one of only two practices in the country* utilizing both theEmbryoScopeTM time-lapse incubation and monitoring system, and LifeAireTM air purification technologies — a combination that has proven the best chance of success.

CFI also has affordable rates, a choice of payment options, and a reputation for providing the attentive care that patients deserve. The practice accepts most insurance plans and offers a range of options for self-pay patients, including IVF, Donor egg IVF and Fertility Preservation. Patients interested in obtaining additional information about Carolinas Fertility Institute and our services, you may call 336 448 9100 or visit us at
